Probably.....: If you have no fever, you likely have acute bronchitis due to a viral infection. Coughing into your elbow will help prevent spread of infection while the bronchitis runs its course in about 7-10 days. Another possible etiology is bronchospasm. If your cough is not improving, or if you develop shortness of breath, see your doctor for diagnosis and treatment. Smoking cessation is also needed. ...Read more
